->''"The pink heart is the emblem of love! Freshly picked, Cure Peach!"''
->''"The blue heart is the emblem of hope! Freshly gathered, Cure Berry!"''
->''"The yellow heart is the emblem of faith! Freshly harvested, Cure Pine!"''
->''"The scarlet heart is the proof of happiness! Freshly ripened, Cure Passion!"''

The sixth entry in the ''Anime/PrettyCure'' franchise. The title comes from the heroines' fresh fruit EdibleThemeNaming.

[[MeaningfulName Love Momozono]] is a [[GenkiGirl ridiculously-positive and empathetic]] girl who loves dancing. While attending a concert by her idols Trinity, she is caught in an attack by the evil forces of Labyrinth, who seek to conquer TheMultiverse by finding a MacGuffin called "Infinity". Love's desire to protect her idols and the happiness of those around her transform her into Cure Peach, one of the Legendary Warriors known as Pretty Cure.

She soon forms a PowerTrio with her childhood friends: Miki Aono, an InsufferableGenius and fashion model who transforms into Cure Berry; and Inori Yamabuki, a kind-hearted animal lover who becomes Cure Pine. Together with WeaselMascot Tart and baby puffball thing Chiffon, they must track down Infinity and protect the world from Labyrinth's machinations.

''Fresh'' was an attempt to refresh (no pun intended) the ''Anime/PrettyCure'' franchise after the successful but derivative ''Anime/YesPrettyCure5''. It lowered the number of main characters to a manageable three, allowing for more development per character, and increased the amount of action and drama. The show later introduces a StoryArc focused on Labyrinth agent Eas, who attempts to [[TheMole infiltrate Love's group]] and steal her TransformationTrinket, only for the story to [[{{Deconstruction}} deconstruct]] BecomingTheMask in [[VillainousBreakdown the most painful way possible]], culminating in the birth of [[SixthRanger the fourth Pretty Cure]], Cure Passion.

----
!!''Fresh Pretty Cure'' provides examples of:
* AlternateContinuity: To the other series.
* AnimationBump: Episode 12, despite being a comedic filler episode, is animated surprisingly well.
* BattleInTheRain: Peach's last fight with Eas.
* BecomingTheMask: Horrifically de-constructed. Eas' new feelings of friendship towards Love cause her nothing but confusion and pain as Love systematically disproves her ''entire world view''.
* BelligerentSexualTension: Love and Daisuke (even if Love's more genki than most tsunderes around), almost reminiscent of [[Manga/WeddingPeach Momoko and Yousuke]].
* BigDamnHeroes: Episode 42
** Episode 48: [[spoiler: Just when it seems as if Pretty Cure is about to be defeated once and for all by TheDragon, Westar and Soular, who had supposedly died two episodes prior, swoop in to defend the girls. The general populace of Labyrinth may be considered BigDamnHeroes as well, since they are the ones who gave Pretty Cure the power to actually get back up and fight.]]
* BookEnds: Episode 23 has Love's attempts to get Setsuna to join rejected.
* BluffTheImposter: Love pulls this in episode 40.
* BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine: Episode 27 is entirely dedicated to this, including [[SpecialGuest a guest appearance from the very real comedy duo Audrey]].
** And earlier on, someone mentioned that at one point in episode 1, Love looked like a combination of Boke and Tsukkomi: "She says and does stupid things and then ALSO does the punch lines to herself".
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Kaoru-chan, Tarte, and Chiffon during the introduction to the movie. In the credits, the cast gives instructions to the audience.
** LeaningOnTheFourthWall: Due to AudienceParticipation, Love seems to address the viewers during a key scene in the movie. Later, Kaoru-chan makes a comment that's seemingly addressed to the audience.
* BruceLeeClone: In the movie, Love ends up facing an action figure who sports a yellow jumpsuit, weilds nunchaku and yells out FunnyBruceLeeNoises.
* ButNowIMustGo: [[spoiler:At the end of the series, Labyrinth is now a safe and friendly enough environment for Setsuna, Hayato, and Shun to return, and return they do. Of course, there's no reason why they can't come back and visit. Which Setsuna always does whenever [[PrettyCureAllStars it's time for the customary team up movie.]] And if ''New Stage 2'' is to be trusted, Setsuna still makes occasional visits to do dance training routine.]]
* ByThePowerOfGreyskull: ''"Change! Pretty Cure! Beat Up!"''
* CallingYourAttacks: Not just the actual attacks, but also Double Pretty Cure Punch, Double Pretty Cure Kick, Triple Pretty Cure Punch, and so on and so forth.
* CastFromHitPoints: The Nakisakebe card works this way
* CatchPhrase: Love's "Let's obtain happiness!"[[note]]"Shiawase getto da yo!"[[/note]], Miki's "I am perfect!"[[note]]"Atashi kanpeki!"[[/note]], Inori's "I believe!"[[note]]"Watashi, shinjiteru!"[[/note]], and Setsuna's "I will do my best!"[[note]]Sei ippai, ganbaru wa!"[[/note]]. Also, Peach, Berry and Pine's personal attack will always begin with "Bad things, bad things, go away!"
** MadLibsCatchPhrase: Most of them aren't said phrase to phrase, but has variations like "I'll do my best (not) to X!", "We'll get our happiness!", "That's perfect!", "I believe that X..." etc...
** CatchPhraseInterruptus: At one point, Westar interrupts that.
-->'''Peach''': Bad things, bad things--
-->'''Westar''': WILL NOT GO AWAY! *Nakewameke smacked Peach mid-sentence*
** Kaoru-chan, the doughnut store owner, has a signature laugh "Guha!" which became his CatchPhrase. PlayedForLaughs during the FreakyFridayFlip when the Precures think he's okay when he laughed like that, not noticing that it's actually a ''bullfrog'' that got switched with Kaoru-chan, making the same sound.
** BorrowedCatchphrase: In the final episode, Miki and Inori switch their catch phrases, while Setsuna and Love do the same for their own.
* ChestInsignia: The colorful four-leaf clover
* CombinedEnergyAttack: While not precisely an attack, [[spoiler: the Cure Angel transformations are essentially caused by this. The Cures' ultimate attacks, Loving True Heart and Loving True Heart Fresh, are straight examples of this trope.]]
** A villainous example occurs in the movie, which allows the villain to assume his OneWingedAngel form.
* ColossusClimb: Cure Peach does this during the movie.
* CueTheSun: Cure Passion's first appearance.
* DancingTheme: This was the series that kick-started the trend of including 3D dancing themes for the ClosingCredits in all subsequent Pretty Cure series.
* DarkerAndEdgier: The series can get rather dark and frightening at certain points, or as dark and frightening as a show for little girls is allowed to be. The events of the mid-season arc, the implications of [[{{Dystopia}} Labyrinth]] in general, and pretty much everything Northa does come to mind.
* DebutQueue: The introduction of the Cures. It's averted during the power-up spree; not only does Inori get her MidSeasonUpgrade before Miki, but the upgrades do not occur in sequential episodes.
* DisneyDeath: [[spoiler:Setsuna is resurrected as Cure Passion,]] and later in the series, [[spoiler:Westar and Soular prove that you can, in fact, survive being sucked into a black hole. Guess the only one of the four cardinal directions villains whose death is going to be permanent is Northa's.]]
* DramaticThunder: Happens during an impassioned speech by Daisuke in episode 15...which promptly causes him to [[{{Fainting}} faint]] due to his FearOfThunder.
* EleventhHourSuperpower: [[spoiler: The Cure Angel upgrades.]]
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: The Soba Seller.
* EvilDetectingDog: Takeshi's dog, Lucky, recognizes Setsuna easily in episode 25, but doesn't attack her.
* EvilKnockoff: Cure Passion has to deal with a shadow in the shape of her former self, Eas, in episode 25.
* EvolvingCredits: Cure Passion is added to the opening during the latter half of the series. Also, Northa's face is initially [[FaceFramedInShadow framed in shadow]] until she appears in the show proper.
* ExtraordinarilyEmpoweredGirl
* EyeCatch: Notable in that Chiffon's different costumes seen in one of the eyecatches actually appear in the series proper.They're seen at the begnning of episode 18, with the same music as the eyecatch. It turns out to be part of Miki's MidseasonUpgrade...and Chiffon's bear costume actually plays a role in the story of the episode.
* FaceOfAThug: A variation. A very stern looking elderly woman runs a candy store in Clover Town. We see her give out quite a bit of free candy.
* {{Fanservice}}: Episode 2 gives us a brief ShowerScene with Miki. Probably the only one we got in the whole series.
* FiveBadBand: Labyrinth
** BigBad: Moebius
** CoDragons: Northa and Klein
** TheBrute: Westar
** EvilGenius: Soular
** TheDarkChick: Eas (pre-HeelFaceTurn)
* {{Foreshadowing}}: In Episode 15, Setsuna has to choose between either a red bowling ball or a black one. She picks the black one, but later on she becomes the red Pretty Cure.
* FreakyFridayFlip: Inori and Tarte switch bodies in episode 10.
* FrillyUpgrade: Cure Peach gets these after transforming into Cure Angel in the movie... [[spoiler:and eventually, the rest of the Cures get them as well, after accessing their own Cure Angel upgrades during the penultimate episode.]]
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: In episode 14 one happens when Westar runs into a pole.
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: Done by [[spoiler:Cure Berry]] to [[spoiler:Cure Peach]] in TheMovie.
* GoodHurtsEvil: The villains cannot touch the {{Transformation Trinket}}s for this reason. The [[AmplifierArtifact Clover Box]] is the same.
* GratuitousEnglish
* HeelFaceMindScrew: Mercifully averted, as the girls arrive [[BigDamnHeroes just in time]] to save their comrade Setsuna from being brainwashed back into Labyrinth in episode 42.
* HeelFaceTurn: Setsuna/Eas became Cure Passion, the [[SixthRanger Fourth Ranger]] to the girls, in episode 23. [[spoiler:Then Westar and Soular, [[DisneyDeath having recovered from being sucked into a black hole two episodes earlier]], [[EleventhHourRanger help the Cures]] in their fight againt Northa in episode 48.]]
* HighHeelFaceTurn: Setsuna/Eas, [[TheSmurfettePrinciple sole female member of the antagonists]], becomes [[SixthRanger Cure Passion]] and joins the protagonists. The sole evil female position, though, was filled by the decidedly more evil Northa.
* HotterAndSexier: Mildly. As this is the first Precure series that attempts to broaden the audience range, the art style for this season gave the female characters more visible breasts. There isn't ''that'' much of a difference, though, and for the most part, the female characters are still conservatively dressed.
** [[http://safebooru.org/index.php?page=post&s=view&id=976926 Pointed out and parodied in this fanart featuring the other Cures]]
** There's also the facts that this is pretty much the only Precure show to ever have a ShowerScene (featuring Miki, in episode 2), though they don't go really much into details for it. Along with [[EvilIsSexy villainness with more revealing outfit than other villainnesses]] (Eas)... [[spoiler:which is short-lived, pulled a HighHeelFaceTurn and spends the rest of the series with conservative outfit.]]
** ArtisticAge: Consider all those above, and it's also explicitly stated that the Cures are still 14 years old. Setsuna included.
* IdolSinger: More like Idol ''Dancer''.
* IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight: A rare villainous version: ''Westar'' tries one of these on Setsuna shortly after her HeelFaceTurn. Unfortunately for him, as he's not a hero it didn't work.
* InformedAbility: Played with. In the 'specialty'-assigning episode, whereas we get stuffs like Peach specializing in punching, Berry specializing in kicking, Pine specializing in stamina, Passion specializing in speed/dodge, kind of make sense at first. However, each Cures have been known to use all four traits sparingly. The reveal of that specialty-assignment also end up causing a CripplingOverspecialization and caused the Cures to fare badly, until Miyuki tinkers things up to make them realize that the [[AnAesop Aesop]] is the usual 'teamwork' and synchronizing their hearts with those specialization which granted them ''Lucky Clover Grand Finale''. And yet in said attack, none of the 'specializations' mentioned shine on.
* InTheNameOfTheMoon: See the page quote. There's also this parody in episode 49.
--> ''The sweets heart is the emblem of deliciousness! Freshly made! We're the Doughnut Brothers!''
* ISurrenderSuckers: Setsuna pulls a heroic version of this, pretending to accept Moebius' forgiveness so she can have a shot at destroying the Fuko gauge.
* KamehameHadoken: What it looks like when the Cures continue shooting finishing moves, as seen on episode 7.
* KarmicTransformation: Much to her dismay, Inori ended up being placed in Tarte's body in episode 10 due to her fear of ferrets.
* LastMinuteHookup: [[spoiler: Averted with Love and Daisuke, but it looks good for them.]]
* LateArrivalSpoiler: Cure Passion's identity was spoiled left and right by merchandising at least a month before she actually appeared on-screen.
* LetsYouAndHimFight: In episode 43 the Cures have hallucinations that cause them to fight each other. (None of them actually realize they're fighting each other though.)
* LickedByTheDog: Setsuna in episode 25, ironically enough by the same dog she [[KickTheDog kicked]] back in episode 3, just to show that [[EvenTheDogIsAshamed this dog is NOT ashamed of her]].
* LivingMacGuffin: [[spoiler: Chiffon was Infinity all along.]]
* LotusEaterMachine: The world of memories, created by the Camera Nakewameke. An inversion, a world where everything is full of despair, is created from Northa's Fuko Energy fog.
* MagicalGirl
** MagicalGirlWarrior
* MagicSkirt: Both forms; thank the petticoats in Cure forms!
* MeaningfulName
* MidSeasonUpgrade: The Cure Sticks for Peach, Berry, and Pine. Later, the Cures get another upgrade that let's them do their CombinationAttack FinishingMove.
* MistreatmentInducedBetrayal: Double subverted. [[spoiler:Eas receives a letter declaring that she's fired and that her allotted lifespan is going to run out. Instead of running to Love for help, she becomes more determined to defeat Love before these "strange feelings" of friendship and self-worth that the Cures give her take over, so that her bosses will change their minds about her [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness having become useless]]. However, Eas gives up in her fight against Peach, her bosses [[MoralEventHorizon kills her anyway]], and Akarun (the red key sprite) brings her back to life as a Cure.]] Disgusted with her previous actions, she eventually joins the side of good.
** A straight example happens with [[spoiler: Westar and Soular, who join Pretty Cure when Moebius decides [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness they have outlived their usefulness.]]]]
* MonsterOfTheWeek: Nakewameke, which abandon the more or less freeform look of previous [=MOTWs=] in favor of a more natural-looking appearance, while still being will-the-Precure-please-get-giant-robots-already big. It gains a powered up version called Nakisakebe in episodes 19 through 22, before being replaced by Northa's Sorewatase monsters late in the series.
** At the end of the series [[spoiler: a ''good'' MonsterOfTheWeek appears, which is called a Hohoemina.]]
* TheMovie: ''The Kingdom of Toys has Lots of Secrets?!''
** NonSerialMovie: Technically, the movie falls under this trope. It was released after episode 38 aired. However, in a case of EarlyBirdCameo, Usapyon makes a brief appearance in episode 26 and the Toy Kingdom appears in episode 35. The Toy Kingdom is later seen again in episodes 45 and 50, and [[spoiler:and the Cure Angel transformation appears in episode 48 as the EleventhHourSuperpower.]] As such, the movie can be considered canon.
* MusicalSpoiler: More like very subtle Musical {{Foreshadowing}}. If you listen carefully to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mF0zs-WWr4c Labyrinth's Theme]], you should notice some very strange ambient noise which seems out of place, but it's [[TheReveal revealed]] in the GrandFinale that the noise is [[spoiler: BeepingComputers which refer to the fact that [[BigBad Moebius]] is really a [[TheComputerIsYourFriend well-meaning AI]] [[AIIsACrapshoot with a few screws loose]]]].
* MythologyGag: Many throughout the series. For instance:
** In Episode 12, little Love is forced to put on a wig of [[Anime/YesPrettyCure5 Cure Rouge]]. Other wigs seen include [[Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure Cure White]] and [[Anime/YesPrettyCure5 Cure Dream]].
** Even the ''title'' is a MythologyGag: back in ''YesPrettyCure5'', Nozomi had guessed the next Pretty Cure would be Cure ''Fresh''.
* NightmareFace: Employed by Setsuna, herself a Face for several episodes at the time, and ''Love'', of all people, in episode 30 ''simultaneously''.
* NonHumanSidekick: Chiffon and Tarte. In the final arc [[spoiler: Tarte's fiance Azukina joins the group.]]
* OneGenderSchool: Inori's school, Christian Private White Clover Academy... but it's rarely seen.
* ParentsInDistress: Love's mother gets switched with a mirror enemy in one story and it's up to Love (her real daughter) and Setsuna (her surrogate daughter) to rescue her.
* PleaseWakeUp: Peach's reaction to Eas' DisneyDeath.
* PortmanteauSeriesNickname: In-series - "''H@ppy Together''", the seconding DancingTheme, has them [[SpellingSong spelling it out]]: ''PRECURE''.
* PowerGivesYouWings: Cure Angel in the movie... [[spoiler:and all four Cure Angels in the series.]]
* ThePowerOfLove: Guess which one of the girls has this power.
* PummelDuel: Cure Peach and [[spoiler: Northa]] briefly have one of these.
* QuirkyMinibossSquad: Although unlike other ''PrettyCure'' examples, it starts to disband after Cure Passion's appearance.
* RampageFromANail: The TyrannosaurusRex chasing after Cure Pine in the movie because a glass or sorts got stuck on its leg.
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: Reversed--Death Equals Redemption, leading to RedemptionEarnsLife.
** Initially played straight with [[spoiler:Westar and Soular, who are seemingly pulled into a black hole for deletion after saving Berry and Passion from the same fate. And ''then'' [[RedemptionEarnsLife they get better]] two episodes later. ]]
* RedHerring: ([[IncrediblyLamePun Get it?]]) The girls (and Tarte) at first think Miyuki is Cure Passion, but they're wrong...
* SecretKeeper: Several, in a first for the franchise. As the series progresses, the number of people who know the identities of the Cures, their companions, and their mission even increases.
* SeriesFranchise
* ShipTease: Miki hugging Inori in one of the previews
* {{Shojo}}
* ShoutOut: Episode 12 is full of these. Just look at the wigs. There's even a [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII Sazh]] wig!
** Includes a old girl with [[FutariWaPrettyCure Cure White]] hair and a dog with strange horns [[{{Gaiking}} horns]].
** Compare [[spoiler:Westar and Soular's explanation about their [[BackFromTheDead comeback]]]] with the prologue of Series/KamenRiderBlackRX. Cue Kamen Rider jokes about [[spoiler:those two]] spread within the fandom.
** [[spoiler:Angel Peach's and Angel Berry's]] pose may [[GundamWing seem]] [[GundamSeed familiar...]]
** Peach and Eas' fight in episode 23 looks like something out of ''DragonBallZ''.
* SixthRanger: More like "Fourth Ranger". Anyway, Setsuna fills this slot starting in episode 23.
** EleventhHourRanger: [[NonHumanSidekick Azukina]] decides to join the girls from episode 45 onwards. Same with [[spoiler:[[HeelFaceTurn Westar and Soular]] after episode 48.]]
* SolomonDivorce: Miki and Kazuki's parents.
* SoundtrackDissonance: Early on the movie, happy music plays as Love and friends had their fun time in Love's house, and occasionally switching into children losing their toys and crying... ''all while the same happy music plays''.
* SpannerInTheWorks: Klein didn't count on Akarun [[spoiler:reviving Setsuna as Cure Passion]], and he certainly didn't expect her to be a Cure. Hell, [[DidntSeeThatComing not even Setsuna herself was aware]] that she was Cure Passion until [[spoiler:[[RedemptionEarnsLife redemption earned her back her life]].]]
* SpecialGuest: Episode 27 features a town festival featuring the manzai duo [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audrey_(owarai) Audrey]]. The pair are sponsoring the manzai contest that the girls accidentally enter, and later use their BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine to actually help the Cures defeat the Nakewameke.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Is it Westar or Wester? Soular or Souler? Northa or Norza? Tart or Tarte? Despite there being trading cards that show some of those names, the fandom still can't seem to come to consensus about which spelling is correct for any of them.
* StoryArc:
** Episodes 19 - 26: The Setsuna/Eas subplot becomes the focus of these episodes, climaxing in Eas's transformation into Cure Passion in episode 23 and her joining the Cures in episode 24. The arc is then capped off with two Setsuna centric episodes.
** Episodes 34 - 37: TheReveal of Infinity, the introductions of the Clover Box and Northa, and the Pretty Cure's new MidSeasonUpgrade are all part of this single story arc.
** Episodes 42 - 50: The finale.
* TakingYouWithMe: [[spoiler: Moebius rages at the fact that he cannot control the Cures and decides to blow himself up with them inside. Luckily, they're bailed out by Chiffon just in time.]]
* TheDayTheMusicLied: Episode 36, complete with RecordNeedleScratch.
* ThemeTuneCameo: The second ending music is used repeatedly during the series, and the first ending music is the song the Trinity group dances to in the first episode.
* ThemeNaming: Jumping on the previous season's bandwagon, not only the mascots are named after food, but the Cures are as well. Four of the villains are named for directions (Northa, Eas, Soular, and Westar), and two of them are name for orientations - Moebius and Klein are taken from [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mbius_strip "Moebius strip"]] and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Klein_bottle "Klein bottle"]]
* TheyStillBelongToUsLecture: Attempted several times after Eas' HeelFaceTurn. Westar invokes this because he is genuinely hurt by Setsuna's defection and wants his comrade to return. Later on, Northa uses it purely as part of a MoralEventHorizon-crossing MoreThanMindControl gambit.
* ThoseTwoGuys: Yuki and Kento. Their third friend, Daisuke, is a bit more important than the other two.
* [[ThreePlusTwo Three Plus One]]
* TitleThemeTune
* TransformationSequence
* TransformationTrinket
* TrueCompanions
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: You would think, that enormous [[MonsterOfTheWeek Monsters of the Week]] (that cannot be InvisibleToNormals due to their very purpose) and Pretty Cures beating crap out of each other in the middle of the town would draw some serious attention from the world.
* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: We know they're in Japan, but where the heck can we find Clover Town Street?
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Inori, who loves animals, except ferrets, and Tarte just happened to be a ferret. She gets over it as part of the plot of episode 10.
** Daisuke's afraid of thunder, as revealed in episode 16.
** Miki is afraid of anything made of octopus, shown in episode 33.
* YeahShot
* YouAreNumberSix: The citizens of Labyrinth are all numbered; although they don't use those numbers as names, Eas is addressed by hers in her letter.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Miki, more like bluish-purple. Also, her brother Kazuki, and villains Wester and Soular when transformed. Setsuna, in every form, can also count, although in civilian form it could be considered as stylized black.
* YouHaveFailedMe
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness
* ZettaiRyouiki: Eas, who combines it with hot pants, and Cure Berry
